immigrants from virginia to missouri. i never really thought about immigration much growing up. my grandfather was italian. i was aware he had a different life from me. and very grateful for the opportunities that he give us. my father was the youngest child growing up in the depression. all they wanted to do was the american. he does not even know italian. i never even thought about it. during the development of a career path, i fell into immigration. like a lot of young attorneys, i was interested in human rights. i was offered a job at the department of justice with the ins. i was not tried to do it. i started thinking about what i cared about. it was public service. you make a difference where you are. i believed for the 13 years that i was in ind and then dhs, that i was able to help make changes within the government structure. i was detailed to senator kennedy's office. i worked on the immigration bill. when it was time to go back to dhs -- i decided i needed to be more engaged in the public debate. there's some things you cannot do as a public servant that you can do on the
'm with the water out of alexandria, virginia, i want to address legislative things but public engage meant. i think the most important things we can do in terms of communication with the hengs, is water is one voice. it's very important. when i say water, i mean water and waist water. it's very important that the message dare that i completely agree it has to be clear and distinct but right now we have echos and when we speak to washington there's an echo effect and we need to be one voice and i think that needs to be clear. >> thank you. yes? >> hi, i'm with the california public utilities commission. i watched the news last night and another senator was really claiming on the debate on global warming, gee, i think you're saying it's profitable for the green industries now and i'm thinking, of course it needs to be profitable and really the fossil fuel and oil industries that are making hundreds more times more profit and that's what drives this. if we could internalize externalities and middest oil and regardless of your political leaning if you or we could internalize that that's what it takes
been issued for east coast of the u.s. from north carolina northeast ward to the north carolina/virginia border. the hurricane watch has been adjusted northward and extends from the state line there up to delaware. you can see that there. and we also have tropical storm warnings that have been issued from cape fear westward. that's including a much greater area here, warning people they need to be prepared for the storm. if you are in the warning area now, you need to rush everything you need to do before the hurricane arrives. rush to completion. make sure you have the three-supplies of food and water as well as batteries. your noaa weather radio because you could lose power. let's show you the latest forecast track. i don't think this has changed at all. it looks the same as the last advisory. i will read the discussion and see if there are notes if there but it looks the same, and the timing looks the same as well. the category 3 storm moving in. we will continue to monitor the situation. the winds getting rough. we are seeing live pictures of the carolinas, and you mentioned the rip
carolina and extreme southeast virginia early thursday morning, just a small change in the direction of the storm could raise an impact and the large waves, beach erosion and rip currents will be a problem up and down the east coast until earl is gone. >> we're already seeing the first mandatory evacuation on north carolina's ocrocoke island. how are you managing evacuations all up and down and in what regions? >> well the evacuations are of course are the authority of the local officials so we don't make that call. we will probably have to go with some warnings later on "today" as the storm gets closer and that will probably trigger other evacuations within the watch and warning areas. >> give us an area, from where to where do you recommend that people are very conscious about this storm? >> all right, i would take anywhere along the north carolina coast, tropical storm conditions in the far southeast, all the way up to the virginia beach area because that's the area that will be impacted as early as tomorrow on into tomorrow night and early friday morning. depending on how far off
eastern virginia and then again, come friday, a threat to southeast new england, mainly the cape. a little early to tell specifically for the cape, but they're doing the right thing in the carolinas, getting the tourists out of the area. bill: it's moving at a pretty quick clip. 16 miles an hour, that's almost lightning speed for a storm this size. what are you telling the folks in north carolina that are watching now? >> reporter: well, it's actually a fairly typical speed as one comes down there and i don't think it will speed up a whole lot until it gets even with them. the watches that are currently in effect are going to have to be upgraded sometime today to a warning. they're doing all the right actions, they've been getting the people alerted as of yesterday, and they're starting to move the high risk communities that only have one way out and flood at a very low tide, they're already having those folks move, so i think we're in good shape on the sense of what the threat is in the market carolina, southeast virginia area. bill: bill, thank you very much. i know you guys are working
